Penpont Heritage Centre


Opening times of the Local Heritage Centre -

At our recent Annual general Meeting, a decision was taken to concentrate on organising events and only open the Centre on Saturdays during July and August, 2.00 - 4.00pm. The reason for this is that over the last year, we found that people would come to a specific event rather than just drop into the Centre. this will be reviewed at next year's AGM.

Of course we are still  keen to have as many visitors as possible so arrangements to visit can be made by either telephoning Sophia on 01848 330411 or e-mailing:
